Overview
Barn quilts are rural gifts, a bright spot along America's highways and byways. As a quilter myself, the simple sight of a barn quilt has often made my heart smile. We recognize the blocks, they speak to us without words. This book captures everything I love about barn quilts with beautiful photos and captivating details. Where will you spy your next barn quilt? Bonnie K. Hunter, "Quiltville.com"

Suzi Parron, in cooperation with Donna Sue Groves, documented the massive public art project known as the barn quilt trail in her 2012 book "Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement." The first of these projects began in 2001, when Groves and community members created a series of twenty painted quilt squares in Adams County, Ohio. Since then, barn quilts have spread throughout forty-eight states and several Canadian provinces.
In "Following the Barn Quilt Trail, " Parron brings readers along as she, her new love, Glen, their dog Gracie, and their converted bus Ruby, leave the stationary life behind. Suzi and Glen follow the barn quilt trail through thirty states across thirteen thousand miles as Suzi collects the stories behind the brightly painted squares. With plentiful color photographs, this endearing hybrid of memoir and travelogue is for quilt lovers, Americana and folk art enthusiasts, or anyone up for a good story."
